South Shore Locavores

Calling all Locavores

Join us! Everyone is welcome.

Where does your food come from? How does it get to you? How healthy is it? How can you support local farmers and food producers through your food purchases?

The Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast have teamed up to host an ongoing series of programs about the phenomenon of “eating locally.” Please join us in the discovery of our local food. 

This year, the series is also hosted by the Kingston Council on Aging and the Kingston Public Library Foundation as part of a new collaboration: What’s the Big Idea: a Partnership for Lifelong Learning. The series is sponsored in part by WATD 95.9 FM Radio and Marty’s Buick GMC.

Next up: January 21, 2016
How Do You Locavore? a mix & mingle potluck

Bring a dish and join fellow locavores for one of our famous potlucks. Curious about how others manage to do this ‘locavore thing’ in New England in the middle of winter? This is the group for you! There is no formal program at this session. Instead, you are invited to share your experiences with living a locavore lifestyle.

“Eating locally” is a very individual thing — people do it at different levels, for different reasons, and in many, many different ways. This evening will be an opportunity to discover and share ideas about places to shop, restaurants to frequent, farmers to get to know, and ways to prepare food. It’s also an opportunity to get to know some of the people who come to South Shore Locavore programs. First-timers are welcome, and no registration is needed.

Save the following Thursday evenings:

March 17, 2016 South Shore Organics: a few more of our favorite things
Pam Denholm of South Shore Organics, a family-owned delivery service for fresh, local, often organic, and sustainably-grown produce, returns to share some of her favorite local products and vendors. 

May 19, 2016 Local Cheese Tasting with Adam Centamore
Wine and cheese educator Adam Centamore returns to offer a tasting of local cheeses and advice on wine pairings. His new book, Tasting Wine and Cheese: An Insider’s Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing, will be available for purchase and signing. Watch this one for a possible change of venue.

The series has been running since January 2010.

Love to cook? Please feel free to bring a dish to share to any of the gatherings. There will be time at the beginning and end of each meeting for Munching and Mingling.

TEAM UP AGAINST HUNGER: In an effort to help fight hunger on the South Shore, we will be collecting non-perishable foods at the beginning of each gathering to donate to the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse. If you can, please bring a can.

The gatherings are free. However, if you are able, donations of $0 to $10 will be gratefully accepted to help cover expenses. Any surplus will be used towards library book purchases.

Gather with us at 7:00pm
Council on Aging’s Senior Center
30 Evergreen Street, Kingston MA 02364

Besides the terrific speakers and demos, we’ll provide thorough topic-related resource lists complied by the Kingston Public Library for each session.
